01 SQUARE HAMMER

(3:58)

Living in the night
Beneath devils torn asunder
You call on me
To solve a crooked rhyme
As I'm closing in
Imposing on your slumber
You call on me
As bells begin to chime

Are you on the square
Are you on the level
Are you ready to swear right here right now
Before the devil
That you're on the square
That you're on the level
That you're ready to stand right here right now
Right here right now

Hiding from the light
Sacrificing nothing
Still you call on me
For entrance to the shrine
Hammering the nails
Into a sacred coffin
You call on me
For powers clandestine

Are you on the square
Are you on the level
Are you ready to swear right here right now
Before the devil
That you're on the square
That you're on the level
That you're ready to stand right here right now
Right here right now

Are you on the square
Are you on the level
Are you ready to swear right here right now
Before the devil
That you're on the square
That you're on the level
That you're ready to stand right here right now
Right here right now
Right here right now
Right here right now
Right here right now
Right here right now

02 NOCTURNAL ME

(5:15)
Originally recorded by Echo & The Bunnymen

In an ice-capped fire
Of burning wood
In our world of wire
Ignite our dreams of starry skies
And you and me
As realized our bigger themes

Oh, take me internally
Forever yours, nocturnal me
Take me internally
Forever yours, nocturnal

Do or die
What's done is done
True beauty lies
On the blue horizon

Who or why
What's one is one
In pure disguise
Of vulgar sons

Oh, take me internally
Forever yours, nocturnal me
Take me internally
Forever yours, nocturnal

Whatever burns burns eternally
So take me in turns internally
When I'm on fire my body will be
Forever yours, nocturnal me

In an ice-capped fire
Of burning wood
In our world of wire
Ignite our dreams of starry skies
And you and me
As realized our bigger themes

Oh, take me internally
Forever yours, nocturnal me
Take me internally
Forever yours, nocturnal

03 I BELIEVE

(4:05)
Originally recorded by Simian Mobile Disco

It's the same old song that I always sing each year
But just because it's perennial doesn't make it less real
And I believe that you could be what I need to believe
I believe
Oh it just keeps coming round again
To just keeps coming round again

The conclusion I need is easily reached with you
You have given me all and there's nothing left to do
And I believe that you could be what I need to believe
I believe
I believe
Oh it just keeps coming round again
To just keeps coming round again

04 MISSIONARY MAN

(3:43)
Originally recorded by The Eurythmics

Well I was born an original sinner
I was born from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill
For all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money
Piled up to my chin

My mother told me good
My mother told me strong
She said be true to yourself
And you can't go wrong
But there's just one thing
That you must understand
You can fool with your brother

But don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man

Well the missionary man
He's got God on his side
He's got the saints and apostles
Backing up from behind
Black eyed looks from those bible books
He's a man with a mission
Got a serious mind

There was a woman in the jungle
And a monkey on a tree
The missionary man he was following me
He said stop what you're doing
Get down upon your knees
I've got a message for you that you better believe

Well I was born an original sinner
I was born from original sin
And if I had a dollar bill
For all the things I've done
There'd be a mountain of money

Don't mess with a missionary man
A missionary man
A missionary man
A missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man
Don't mess with a missionary man

05 BIBLE

(6:36)
Originally recorded by Imperiet

The Earth was spinning all vacant and waste
And there was silence over the ocean
When a voice came thundering from above
The first day of light was in motion

Then the voice said may fruits be created
And seeds take root as they may
And no crimes were as yet committed
Life was breathing its second day

In his image this voice made a man
And woman to love each other
They became the rulers of the world
And the third day was their mother

Now who will pray for Babylon
Sing a song to Babylon
On your knees before Babylon
Beat that drum
Because Babylon is falling

Man and woman learned how to make fire
And the kingdom's walls were extended
By the fourth day the walls were reaching so far
No one knew where they ended

Now no one heard that voice anymore
And metal cities came to ascend
On the fifth day spring turned into fall
And a rain fell over the land

But no walls can stop such a rain
That keeps on falling forevermore
I was told that by the sixth day
The Earth was like an open sore

Now who will pray for Babylon
Sing a song to Babylon
On your knees before Babylon
Beat that drum
Because Babylon is falling

The Earth was spinning, all vacant and a waste
And there was silence over the oceans
When a voice came thundering from above
The seventh day was in motion

Now who will pray for Babylon
Sing a song to Babylon
On your knees, people of Babylon
Beat that drum
Because Babylon is falling
Falling

I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created
And with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground
For I regret that I have made them
